College receives TWC small business grant


Kilgore College Workforce Development has been awarded a $21,000 Skills for Small Business (SSB) grant by the Texas Workforce Commission.

The SSB grant will provide tuition for approved employees of small business employers in the KC service area.

Employers seeking to access these funds should contact TWC directly to begin the vetting process.  The grant period runs through January 2018.

After TWC approves an employer for participation in the grant, KC will be contacted and will begin working with the employer on the enrollment process.

Allocated funds can only be used for published KC tuition courses that relate to a company’s purpose.
